    Can all people who has been victimised by this suspect please contact me urgently, as she has been arrested on 2014/01/15 and will appear in Randburg court, Johannesburg on Monday 2014/01/20. We need as many cases as possible so we can build a strong case against her as not to get bail!

    She operates on two cell phone numbers: 081 325 3587 and 082 488 8654.Under the names of "Jen", "Lu" or "Lucrecia".

  • Username3597 9 Sep 2016, 03:11 PM

    hi Luvelle I don't know really she got arrested and i think she got off on bail and i couldn't get hold of the police who was dealing with the case at honeydew police station....I eventually gave up. my number is 0723342669 If you need any help

  • Luvelle 9 Sep 2016, 02:39 PM


    I know it's been ages since this post, but I tried to contact you. I just wanted to know what happened with the case......

    I was also the victim for this Jen person in 2013, I paid her R 11670, luckily enough she did pay the landlord the rental amount but not the deposit which is due to me.

  • Alex14 8 Jul 2014, 08:15 AM

    She just sent me an SMS for a property I have advertised from the exact number, Thankfully I found this site with a simple google search, I've since told her where to go.

    Hello all, i am contacting Jen now and shes has been promising me that i will get the apartment but i am playing along and i wish i succeed in getting her someday. I will keep you all posted soon.

  • Bashir 30 Mar 2014, 06:23 PM

    WTF?? She's just emailed me (30 March 2014 @ 17:21) enquiring if the apartment I have is still available to rent! email: Mobile: 0813253587

  • Username3597 24 Mar 2014, 01:19 PM

    Idont know what is happening with this case. I dont believe that her bail conditions should allow her to continue with her scams..i can't find the constable dealing the case. Cecil did you manage to go to the police station? I believe they made a big mistake by giving her bail because clearly she is not going to stop and she is refusing to pay back the money

    Apologies - e-mail is

  • Edward10 24 Mar 2014, 12:44 PM

    HI All.. I have also been scammed by "perfectprop" - I.E Jen of an amount of R18 000. I have built up an information pack on her and am more than willing to share it with any one who would like it. Current steps taken to recover moneys: 1) Register a case the Police (Provide previous CAS numbers against her from other victims and constable details provided in on this page) 2) Hire Tracers to find information on her 3) Hire Lawyers (Debt Collector) to commence legal proceedings against her 4) Submit a formal complaint to the Estate Agency Board of South Africa 5) Continuously Phone, E-Mail and SMS Jen requesting the outstanding amount to be paid. Keep full record of communication. 6) Inform tenant and request they register a Case against her as well to recover there deposit 7) Place this notice on ReportaCrime Next Steps to take: 1) Contact the Southern African Fraud Prevention Service to see how they can assist. 2) Contact Cart Blanche - MNet 3) Contact Speak Out - SABC2 4) Inform Private Property and Property24 of Jen - Perfectprop. Let me know if there is any other suggestions, advise or comments. Regards Edward

  • Arthie 26 Nov 2013, 02:03 PM

    I have been liasing with this women since Friday. I have sent her all of my personal details and she confirmed this morning that I could secure the apartment with the necessary payment. Being the person that I am I decided to look up her profile and that of the agency she claims to belong to as I have not met with her personally, before releasing payment. She still has to foward banking details. I did call the 0813253587 number that appears on the lease agreement, this morning, she does answer as Jen but says its not Perfect prop???????????? With the assistance of my daughters PI skills, we have found this report. Her contact details – 0784764813/ Thankfully I have been saved in the nick of time,hopefully.

    Couldn't open a criminal case against her. I went to Sophiatown police station and they told me that i cant open a fraud or theft case because i deposited money myself so I must go to small claims court...but i dont have all her info and address and that's where i felt police should have come in.

  • Hannelie8 10 Aug 2013, 09:46 AM

    I have come across this Jen a couple of times in the past and have turned her down when she asks to assist in the sale or rental of my properties. I blocked her number today.

  • Andy2 6 Jun 2013, 09:01 AM
